Need a Job FROM UK. Do not speak danish.

Hi my fiancée is danish and currently has a job in Fakta. she lives in Horsens which is a small town closest city is Aarhus. I just finished my degree in Psychology and have decided to take year out to pay for my master in clinical psychology.


I have vast amount of sales and retail experience but have been unable to attain work due to not being able to speak danish currently. I would love to work in sales,customer service or retail.

I have tried looking for other types of jobs but keep running into the issue of not being able to speak danish.

Any advice for finding job.

Please Help

Thank you.

Not sure if you are living in the UK or Denmark right now, so hard to give concrete advice. If you have enough money saved up, the best way to get a job, when you do not speak Danish, is to move to Denmark and search for a job here. It is very hard to get a job, when living overseas. The exception is if you have a degree or career that is in high demand. See information on the Green Card Scheme. Once you are based in Horsens (expect you to live with your fiancee), than sign up with the various Vikar agencies (those are temp jobs) and take whatever jobs come up as you search for your preferred job. There are many companies that hire non Danish speaking people, but they are probably not in your desired field. They will be mostly manual labor- warehouse, production, assembly, etc..

While working you can take classes - work on your Danish and send out resumes. Now you will more likely to get an interview since you are living and working here. Why hire you when you live in the UK. Plenty of people living in Denmark that want a job. Vikar agencies can not give you a job, if you can not show up on the same or next day - can not do that if living in UK. So save up some money, make the move and be willing to take any type of job that comes up. Many people in Horsens work in the "pig industry", since the largest producer of Danish ham is located in Horsens. Lots of foreigners, who do not speak Danish, work there. But there are plenty of other places too.
